Request for Proposals - supporting implementation of the Opening Extractives programme in Liberia

This request for proposals is now closed.

Opening Extractives (OE) - a programme launched by the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and Open Ownership to enhance beneficial ownership transparency - is seeking an individual consultant, based in Monrovia, to support the OE team in implementing beneficial ownership transparency commitments under the OE Programme in Liberia. This will entail supporting the OE team and the Steering Committee in Liberia with the implementation of the OE programme. The objective is to improve government and company disclosures, move towards systematic disclosure of data on beneficial ownership, first in the extractives sector and then in other sectors, and build capacity among key stakeholders in collecting, disclosing, and analysing BO information.

The consultant must be an individual with a proven reputation, perceived by the EITI International Secretariat, and stakeholders in Liberia, to be credible, trustworthy, experienced and technically competent. Proposals should be submitted following the guidelines noted in the attached terms of reference. 

A consultant will be selected following a quality- and cost-based selection procedure.

Consultants should submit:

  • Technical Proposal, outlining: (a) the experience of the firm / consultants, (b) the proposed methodology and work plan in response to the Terms of Reference (TORs) and (c) the key experts’ qualifications and competence. The Technical Proposal should not include any financial information. Technical proposals containing material financial information shall be declared non-responsive. When preparing your proposal, we kindly ask you to include a section on potential conflicts of interest. This section should identify any areas of work, including past, present or future consultancies related to the EITI, which might pose a conflict of interest. Please also describe strategies that you intend to use to minimize those risks.
  • Financial Proposal, clearly indicating a lump sum financial proposal, inclusive of all costs associated with required travel and applicable taxes. The financial proposal should clearly differentiate fees from any other reimbursable expenses. The daily rate for the consultant fees should be clearly indicated. The Financial Proposal should be sent as a password protected PDF file. The passwords should not be sent. The passwords will be requested following the assessment of the technical proposals.
